Manchester United were beaten 1-0 at Old Trafford, with the result ultimately confirming neighbours City as champions. As I was saying, eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues and the last Premier League was not 20 years ago, was three years ago.
Jose Mourinho admits Paul Pogba needs to show much more consistency in his performances and has challenged the midfielder to maintain the form that saw him nearly single-handedly dismantle Manchester City last week.
'We were masters in complication.
United have scored a full 30 goals fewer than City this season and Mourinho has not managed to get his side to click, despite being able to bring on further talent such as Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial. "With my experience you don't win titles with inconsistency".
Sitting second to City in the Premier League, Jose Mourinho's side are now only one-point clear of third-placed Liverpool; although they do have a game in-hand on Jurgen Klopp's side.
Mourinho was equally elated over the Pogba Manchester derby performance, and speaking to The Telegraph he gave an insight into the coaching of the £89 million man and what he told him after the win.
"I saw lots of people [over] the moon because we won against City". Everything was complicated. We couldn't think fast, we couldn't play fast.
Jose Mourinho has told Paul Pogba that he wants the midfielder to show more consistency for Manchester United this season and beyond.. Players didn't play simple.
He added: "They won the title because they were the best team". I don't expect him to score two goals every week, either, but I would like him to be consistent to a certain level. "Everything was slow. Everyone was one more touch, one more trick, one more flick, one more turn".
